Students are considered to be participating in the Take Home Chromebook program and will be automatically enrolled in the Protection Plan. Parents must complete the electronic Responsible Use Policy for all of their children in Richland District Two schools. No signed forms are required this year, only the electronic RUP. Parents will make payments in the fees office at RNH for the $50 protection plan. Please note the Protection Plan for Take Home Devices includes the following statement: If the student is approved by the principal to opt out of the take-home program and the coverage premium, and the device remains in school, the student will be assessed the full cost of replacement or repair for all incidents.
Students may participate in the in-school program for daily use of Chromebooks only with written parent request. This program will not be in place until October due to limited personnel to monitor charge carts. Please note the following statement, included in the Protection Plan for Take Home Devices, which applies to both the take-home and in-school plans: If the student is approved by the principal to opt out of the take-home program and the coverage premium, and the device remains in school, the student will be assessed the full cost of replacement or repair for all incidents.
All students must have their parent or guardian sign the electronic RUP in order to be able to access computing devices on school property.
Students and parents at RNH are given the opportunity to decline the use of the Chromebook provided by the school if the parent or guardian wishes to have their child use a personal device instead while on campus. A signed form must be brought to the TLC. Please note that certain personal devices may not connect to the district's secure Wi-Fi. Richland Northeast High School and RSD2 assume no responsibility in connecting these devices to the RSD2 secure Wi-Fi account. In addition, neither the school not RSD2 is responsible for damage or theft of personal devices brought on school grounds. By signing this form, the student agrees to bring a personal computing device for classwork designated by the subject area teacher. The device is not to be used for social networking.
